Delicate pink walls line the interior of American Beauty Tan, where a skilled team of stylists and technicians bolsters beauty regimens with traditional and UV-free tanning, hair services, manicures, and pedicures. A sunless Mystic Tan booth swathes skin in customized bronzing solutions alongside five levels of horizontal and stand-up tanning beds lined with lamps that emit up to 160 watts of colorizing rays. The hue-imbuing chambers reside in private tanning suites, where tanners can undress without being seen and perform dramatic monologues from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure without being scouted for its Broadway adaptation. Sleek haircuts, meticulously trimmed nails, and waxing services for faces, legs, and arms are on hand to complement the tanning treatments.
The licensed aestheticians at FaceLuXe clear skin of dirt and unwanted hair with a full spectrum of facials and waxing services. Their concern for individual care shines through in the consultations that precede each treatment, during which they select products that match clients’ specific skin types. They then use these products in signature facials designed to address issues associated with aging, such as fine lines and burn marks from trying to blow out too many birthday candles at once. As a partner of MassageLuXe—a company dedicated to improving health through therapeutic massage—FaceLuXe offers relaxation packages such as the Day of Renew treatment, which includes a massage, facial, and warm lavender paraffin treatment for the hands and feet.

Other facial options include glycolic skin peels, nonsurgical facelifts performed with gentle microcurrent, and ultrasonic facials.

During three RenuvaSkin sessions, visitors stand on a vibrating platform and revel in head-to-toe crimson LED beams. The combination of motive and spectral stimuli aims to bolster muscle tone and circulation, tighten lax elastin, and spur collagen production and boost morale within fibroblast factories. Soul-cage surfaces typically attain noticeable softening after each 12-minute procedure, but repeated exposure can assuage pigmentation problems and shake accumulated wrinkles out of vintage birthday suits.
